About me

Hello my name is Susy.  I am a counsellor who wants to give you the opportunity to be heard and understood.   My belief is that the power of the therapeutic relationship is a safe place to unravel and explore what is going on beneath the surface.   It is the beginning of finding the real you.
All too often our innermost feelings and thoughts are dismissed as not being important and we don’t ask for help  – this has a negative effect on mental and physical wellbeing leading to unwelcome behaviours, stress and depression.   Sometimes problems of low mood, anxiety and poor self esteem are issues we have been carrying around since childhood.  I am able to offer you experience, empathy and realness in a non-judgemental space to help you see things clearer and from a different perspective.  
I believe that each and every person is unique and my training as an integrative therapist allows me to work with each client in the best possible way.  This, combined with my kind and sensitive approach, allows us to work together to unravel and understand what is going on, and how to get you to a better place.
My own experience of counselling has seen me through difficult times and I want to provide help to those wishing to promote positive change too.    Therapy can give you the chance to focus purely on yourself.    It is a brave thing to seek help and I look forward to helping with whatever is on your mind, no matter how large or small.

If you are ready to take that step, send me an email or call me to set up an initial introductory conversation to discuss how we can work together.

‘Don’t set aside your happiness. Don’t wait to be happy in the future. The best time to be happy is always now.’     

I have successfully helped clients with many problems, including lack of, confidence, relationships, grief, addiction, low self esteem,  anxiety,  depression,  work-related problems, family disfunction and caring.

I am able to offer both face-to-face and on-line, short or long term therapy for adults of all ages.     

I am able to offer in person therapy in Buckhurst Hill / Loughton / Harlow, all are very close to stations and have parking available.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
